Man proposes to girlfriend with 16 dogs in attendance

Most people expect a ring, flowers and maybe even music at their dream proposal, but one man surprised his girlfriend with all that and something a bit furrier - 16 dogs.

After more than four years of dating, Laura Stampler thought boyfriend Maurice Goldstein could propose at any point over the past six months, she told  CBS News. However, she was completely taken aback when he popped the question while they were home in the Los Angeles area over Thanksgiving.

According to a report in Brides, Maurice popped the question to Laura in the presence of 16 dogs after asking her to take a quick impromptu hike with her to the Runyon Canyon in California.

When the couple reached the top of the canyon, Laura noticed a trail of rose petals on the ground. "It wasn't until I saw the rose petals that I knew it was more. Like, a lot more," she told LadBible. With rose petals beneath their feet and an a capella group singing, Goldstein got down on one knee and proposed.

Laura said ‘yes’ but she was in for a bigger surprise!

As many as 16 therapy dogs appeared around the couple and Laura was bowled over by the entire event. The entire incredible reaction, and dog cuddling afterward, was caught on camera by friend and professional photographer.
